Core Features

  • Publish sensor data in accordance with the Sensor Observation Service (SOS) standard.
  • Administer sensors and data with an intuitive web-based interface.
  • Use a complete RestFul API to access istSOS functionality from external clients to create interactive charts, display sensor on a dinamic map or just write some maintainance scripts.
  • Get notified through mail, twitter or other social media when sensor data meets specific conditions.
  • User authentication and authorization with different access levels (administrator, network manager, data manager and visitor).
  • Create Virtual Procedures that looks like normal stations but whose data results from on-the-fly elaboration of other sensor data.
  • Associate quality indexes to each observation thanks to embedded validation tests.
  • Online editing of data with a seamless interface and advanced observation calculator.

Implemented Standards

  • SOS 1.0.0: Basic and Transactional profiles
